Le future: Get to know rising star Jack Le Brocq

204lebrocq

Jack Le Brocq has found a new Dunlop Series home at championship-winning outfit Prodrive Racing Australia in 2016. After finishing third in last year's title race behind Cameron Waters and Paul Dumbrell, it's now time for the 24-year-old to push towards his goal of a main-game drive.

And he's doing just that, winning the last five races in the Dunlop Series across the Barbagallo Raceway and Townsville rounds. V8X Supercar Magazine profiles Prodrive Racing Australia's Dunlop Series drivers in issue #93.

Issue #93 is on sale now in stores with the digital edition available in the official V8X app (in the App Store and Google Play), online at DigitalEdition.V8XMagazine.com.au and in the Magzter app store.

Le Brocq is enjoying the benefits of being part of the Prodrive stable which is helping to fast track his knowledge in the hope of securing a main-game seat.

"I'm learning heaps; they've got Mark [Winterbottom] and Chaz [Mostert] who are very experienced and have won a whole bunch of races and they've got Cam [Waters] and Chris [Pither] in there as well," says Le Brocq.

"They are very helpful, we can always go to them and ask questions. We've got all their data to compare with as well. It all helps from knowing how to bang out one quick lap through to racing the car for 20 laps while looking after the rear tyres. They are little things but they can really help you."

So with the best equipment at his disposal, some serious talent and high-profile help, Le Brocq has a very clear aim for the 2016 Dunlop Series season.

"To be honest I'll be disappointed if we don't win the championship this year," he says.

"We've come into this year with those expectations and we'll be pushing pretty hard all year to make that happen."
